Tameka gushed: ‘I’ve been contributing to the human race… I have a baby boy, a bouncing baby boy.
‘[It’s] a challenge… nothing prepares you for it. My daughter is 6 and we’re doing homeschooling, and then you’ve got a newborn and you’ve got to watch everything… he’s sleeping now, which helps. I’m made of the good stuff, I’ve come through it OK.’
